Car elevator is one of the types of cargo elevators, but because cars are a special type of goods, they have many different sizes and loads, ranging from 4-7 seats, or have bigger load. This type of elevator is often used in residential parking lots or smart parking places, car showrooms that need to move cars up and down on a daily basis.
Functions of Car Elevators
With residential buildings, smart parking lots with many floors, or showrooms with many floors, the construction of driveway to the upper floors is too costly and takes up a lot of space. Therefore, in order to save costs, space and time, installing a car lift is one of the most cost-saving options.
Structure of The Car Elevators
Car lifts are designed with two doors facing each other to avoid turning around the car when entering or exiting elevator, or designed with a rotating table that is convenient for a car to get in and out of the elevator, and avoiding scratching the car.
Car lifts are designed to withstand heavy loads so that they do not change their shape during use.
When the car enters the elevator, there will be dynamic and concentrated load on the wheels.
Depending on the architecture of the buildings and the needs of use, the car elevator has different moving systems:
The traditional type is similar to many other types of elevators with a geared traction machine located above the elevator shaft and requiring a machine room.
Hydraulic drive type: 1:1 and 1:2 transmission when shaft height is limited. This type is only used for buildings with a small number of floors, about 2-3 floors and little frequency of use.
Gearless traction machine and without engine room.
Transmission type with tractor located at the bottom: This elevator type has a machine room located at the bottom, the speed is from 3-60m/min and uses the cabin system.
